Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Great facility but the uphill trek to get to the house was a bit annoying- transportation (ie. an ATV) is required at minimum to get to the house, the beach, restaurants, and supermarket. Be ready to shell out $$ for either an ATV or a car. Great views otherwise. Clean house and secure. Great cleaning staff.

  • Andy and his crew where nothing short of great. They took care of everything that we needed. The place is incredible and the photos on here don't do it justice. We would definitely stay there again

  • Awesome place to stay. The accommodation was perfectly located, with an amazing view, comfortable bed and hammocks too. Kitchen is well stocked and entire house was clean and spacious. We had a great week in Santa Teresa and Andy was extremely helpful with suggestions for dinner, surf hire and things to do. Wish we could have stayed longer! 10 out of 10!!

  • We had a great stay at the Nicoya Suite, Andy made sure we had all we needed & both made us feel welcome and respected our privacy.

  • Pictures and description given by Andrew are the reality. Great place to stay. The view is amazing and the suite well equipped. The beach is at the bottom of the hill. Very easy to access. Great sand. Spread out beach. Outstanding sunsets!
    Andy was in the US when we stayed at Surf Villas. We met Juan who was extremely helpful.
    I recommend this place if you are looking for a great view on the Pacific Ocean.
    We were lucky to see Howler monkeys right were we parked the car.
    Renting an ATV or a car is a must.

    AMAZING view! Santa Teresa is a must great town with perfect beaches. Juan was great, very helpful and knowledgeable. Comfy beds, nice decor and all the amenities you need for short or extended stay.

    Hill is a BEAST to walk up. The showers were not the best. It was clean but not great pressure you basically had to stand directly under spout.

    We did see a large scorpion in the room and our "neighbor" in the villa on the other side of the house was stung by one. I think it is just a reality of the area but be aware!

    The best place we stayed on our trip! Beautiful and reasonable.

  • My wife and I had no idea what to expect when arriving at Surf Vista Villas besides the reviews we read. We did not arrive to the Villas until after 10pm and Juan and Andrew had left a note and access to our room. I had no idea how beautiful the views were until I woke up the next morning overlooking the Pacific. I spent every morning laid back in the hammock over looking the ocean below where you could see all the surfers catching waves and caught some incredible storms over the ocean at night.. Andrew has the best view in town!!! The accommodations were perfect, Juan and Andrew are there for you if you need anything but they also give you plenty of privacy. I would highly recommend surf lessons or any excursions from Juan, he knows the best places to surf, eat and whatever you enjoy. Surf Vista Villas is by far the coolest place we have ever vacationed. The town, the people and the hospitality from Juan and Andrew were perfect! We will definitely return in the near future!

  • Both Andy and the concierge juan were welcoming and helpful from the get-go. I had an amazing stay at the villas. the view will take your breath away, the rooms and classy, clean and very comfortable. I would highluy remmoned this place to anyone looking to stay in Santa is located high above the road, so it is quiet, away from the dust and "traffic".

  • Andy was extremely accommodating to our last minute changes to our trip and was super helpful with directions on taking the coastal route to get from Samara to Santa Teresa. Thank you, Andy!

    The views are absolutely incredible. Although we were only there for 2 nights, we spent a fair share of time in the common area on the front deck in comfy hammocks and swings. We couldn't get enough of the view. The upstairs suite that we stayed in was more than enough room and very well kept, clean, and comfy.

    Both Juan's were super friendly and very helpful. He even offered and opened several fresh, young coconuts for us to enjoy! What a treat :)

    I would highly recommend Surf Vista Villas to anyone who is coming to Santa Teresa.

I've lived in lake tahoe since 1991 and have since grown quite attached to the outdoors . after many years in the snow my desire to be near the ocean grew stronger . after many trips to maui , kauai , and costa rica I found mal pais/santa teresa and never left . it's such a special place . the people , beaches , restaurants , culture and waves are very hard to beat .
